Us too, I loved the smell of the toxic DDT that I inhaled riding bikes behind the sprayer.

Just before she would cut lose with the spray, she’d tell the 1/2 dozen kids in the room to pull the sheet over your face. And then let fly into every nook and cranny.
at my summer camp as a kid they would take one of those hand pump sprayers (like Don Corleone was using when he died) and they would spray down the cabin every night before bed

it put out more of a fog then the Don Corleone one that was more of a liquid, but same type of sprayer
